calendula_witch explains it well. Still exhausted, still challenged at a lot of levels, but better.

Such relief.

Better is such a good word.
As better continues some things will likely demand more attention. If you want to discuss the peripheral neuropathy thingy I have first hand experience--12 years worth. Track me down.

I'm going to give it a month and see what the trends are. At that point I may ping you for advice.

As my oncologist predicted, the PN has actually gotten a bit worse in the last two weeks, even as everything else is starting to turn around. (Like a battleship in a bathtub, but still...) I've been told to expect up to two years to recover from PN, and possibly for it to be permanent.

The weirdest thing isn't the numbness or the subtle loss of functions, it's the temperature responses. My hands can feel simultaneously icy and sweaty-hot, and I can experience *both* at the same time.
